    Nikon D850 worth it over an D810?

    Thanks for the feedback.... I don’t do video, if I did I’d use my iPhone 12pro I guess. Anyway pulled the trigger on a D810. Seller listed as very well looked after, it does look good in the picture and used mainly in doors. It does have 100k shutter counter, so half life, not that is likely to...

    Nikon D850 worth it over an D810?

    Hi Kei, it may have been yourself or one of the other regulars who posted some shots when they first got the 810, I remember being impressed with how much shadow detail could be pulled out. (Just been offered a clean but used 810 for £650, that's hard to ignore) Used the camera comparison...

    Nikon D850 worth it over an D810?

    So a quick search on popular national store for used prices 850 £1800 780 £1600 810 £900 750 £700 The 810 still looks to be the best VFM, I guess the 780 is appealing for it's new tech and features hence it's holding strong used. 750 looks worst VFM, just buy an 810?

    Nikon D850 worth it over an D810?

    What crop factor? they both full frame.... Not seeing any advantage to go mirrorless, don't need the high frame rates, plus I like a larger camera to hold. A 750 or 780 does look another tempting option, thanks for the heads up. My thought was if making a change go for the most amount of...

    Nikon D850 worth it over an D810?

    A lot of noise !!! never read or heard that before, Nikon seem to have very low noise for several generations now I though? Ken Rockwell review is saying how good it was at even 10,000

    Nikon D850 worth it over an D810?

    Having an itch to return to a FF sensor, currently have a D7200, not that is anything wrong with it. So I'm looking online and see D810 can be had for around 7-800 pounds. Which seems very reasonable for such a capable camera. Then you see used D850, which used appears to be an additional...

    The "New Gear/Willy Waving" thread

    Smiling at everyone buying mirrorless, I just picked up possibly a 40 year old Bronica ETRS medium format film camera system… bit of a bucket list thing, always wanted to have a play with medium format. After about 13+ years I ventured back into the darkroom, really is quite refreshing being...

    Toyota Yaris GR4 4x4 Rally going into production.....

    As long as the current “bubble” doesn’t burst I seem to be doing okay as well..... so the GR currently showing over list price, my Mk3 Focus RS after 5 years is climbing after bottoming out, possibly only 5-6k under what I paid new, still early days for the RS, it’s value will be over a longer...

    Toyota Yaris GR4 4x4 Rally going into production.....

    I would very much doubt they will build all these extra batches, so I’d expect there will many disappointed people who potentially will turn to the used market. Even then the numbers in the UK will not that high, so there will always be a rarity value.

    Toyota Yaris GR4 4x4 Rally going into production.....

    Top mod for me so far has been getting the geometry set up. Gone with the 2.5 neg front camber bolts and revised toe front and rear. Has brought the car alive, steering has more feedback less numb at the straight ahead, better turn in, less under steer and now it pivots about the apex. Now you...

    Toyota Yaris GR4 4x4 Rally going into production.....

    There will be plenty of used pampered ones once the PCP deals run out… Many people will be scratching an itch and will sell in my view

    An 80's Hot Hatch for 2021?

    Surprised no one has suggested modern era car that kick started the efforts to sort chassis dynamics out.... that would be the Mk1 Focus. So a budget option would be an ST170, ideal a Mk 1 Focus RS, good luck finding one of those in budget. More recent will be Fiesta ST.... an ST200 would be...
